In line with the Ministry of Education's guidelines, NCCU pandemic prevention measures will be adjusted as follows:
The NCCU campus is open to both university students and personnel as well as the general public. NCCU parking permits are required for motor vehicle access on weekdays. Non-permit cars may access during weekends and national holidays, subject to restriction based on actual parking conditions. If an external vehicle requires campus access to transport university guests, please contact the security office at the General Affairs Office in advance.
Instructors and students have the right to decide whether to wear masks in the classrooms. If there are any special conditions or requirements, both instructors and students should provide sufficient explanation. After reaching a consensus with the class, instructors and students can decide together the guidelines for wearing masks.
In physical education classes, please follow the disease prevention guidelines for physical education classes and other relevant guidelines pertaining to the gymnasium.
Campus cafeterias/canteens are open for use by NCCU students and personnel, following the COVID prevention policy by the Central Epidemic Command Center
There are no restrictions for the maximum capacity at an event, but the organizer must keep a list of attendees. Organizers may arrange for temperature checks, provide hand sanitizing stations, and prohibit eating/drinking at the event.
During the event, attendees generally may decide for themselves whether to wear masks. However, depending on the event situation and environment, the organizer may choose to encourage or require attendees to wear masks.
Students living in single-room accommodations with a private bathroom may apply to self-isolate in their current room. Local students are expected to self-isolate at home for 5 days. Local students from outlying islands and overseas students who are COVID-positive should contact the service desk of Dormitory ZihCiang ( 823-75000)for further arrangement of self-health management.
COVID-positive faculty, staff and students
If you test positive for COVID, you must register as such using the iNCCU system to trigger community spread investigation. According to the updated regulation, COVID-positive personnel are required to self-isolate at home for 5 days after the test, and will not be allowed to enter campus. If you test negative during the five 5-day self-health management period, you may end the self-health management earlier. Local students are expected to self-isolate at home. Those from distant areas or island and overseas students will need to move into assigned dormitories for 5-day self-health management.
As of the new epidemic prevention policies on March 20th 2023, personnel of this school who test positive for COVID-19 and are identified as mild cases, either using home rapid antigen tests or complying with infection control measures at medical institutions, are required to work from home or conduct online teaching.
If they are unable to work from home or teach online, they may take sick leave (up to 6 days from the day they received a positive result, the reason of leave should be indicated as "self-health management"). When taking sick leave, a photo of the home rapid antigen test kit with the name of the person on leave and the date of the test should serve as proof, and there is no need to request a diagnosis certificate from a doctor.
Students who are identified as mild cases or asymptomatic through screening and provide proof of positive rapid antigen tests (such as photos) may take up to 5 days of sick leave starting from the first day the test was administered without being recorded as absent, and their academic performance will not be affected. If they are still positive on the 6th day and have symptoms, they may follow the same sick leave process as mentioned in the section above regarding positive cases in the first 5 days and obtain a doctor's diagnosis certificate. For those who are identified as moderate to severe cases through screening, they are required to take "epidemic isolation leave", and the number of days will be determined according to the isolation treatment notice. This leave will not be recorded as absent and their academic performance will not be affected.
